Let's talk about institutional investment management. Doing a quick search it looks like there have been a few more allocators on the site since I was last here -- feel free to chime in if you have other experiences.
It's been quite a while since I was on WSO and did my last AMA. I apologize to all of you who have sent me pms over the last year and a half that I didn't respond to. My inbox is flooded so I probably won't get to all of those, but happy to answer questions here.
For background here is the last AMA I did. I worked at a large endowment for 2 years and am currently doing something totally unrelated to finance for fun temporarily and plan to go to bschool next. I feel like I have a lot more info than I did last time I did one of these and have had some time to reflect on my time in the industry as well.
I do have two biases for the record. First, I like this industry so my overall comments will be positive though willing to talk about the cons as well. I intend to return to an E&F after bschool. Second, I worked for an endowment > $5 billion. The E&F world can vary greatly so most of what I say will be biased towards larger endowments.
Happy to answer anything! If I don't know the answer I'll do my best to figure it out.
